No trip to the historic Western Slope of Colorado is complete without a trip to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, where you'll find a host of activities for kids of all ages along with amazing educational activities. It’s where "Where Nature Meets Adventure!"

WE WILL BE CLOSED 10/29/18-3/15/19 FOR IMPROVEMENTS. Coming in Spring 2019! A new high-capacity tram to take you to the adventure even faster.

The park is home to Glenwood Caverns and Historic Fairy Caves, a natural wonder, millions of years in the making and recognized by USA Today both as one of the country's Top 10 Places to Go Underground as well as one of the Top 10 Family Cave Tours. There are two different 40-minute tours that take you deep into the heart of Iron Mountain, where it's a comfortable 52 degrees all year long. The Caverns are home to the largest ‘show cave’ in the state, with an amazing array of formations including, stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, cave bacon and flowstone. Both tours are suitable for kids and no reservations are necessary. For the more adventurous there’s the 2-hour Wild Tour…a true crawl-through-the-cracks, on-your-belly spelunking experience. This tour requires reservations.

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is also America’s only mountaintop theme park. Experience thrill rides that will take your breath away, like one of the state's longest alpine coaster, or the new Haunted Mine Drop... the world's only drop tower ride that goes 110 feet underground! The Mine Drop was recently voted the #1 Best New Amusement Park Attraction. Other one-of-a-kind rides include the nation’s highest elevation roller coaster and the Giant Canyon Swing, perched on the very edge of Glenwood Canyon over 1300 feet above the Colorado River.

Kids love our state-of-the-art laser tag arena, the kid’s coaster, a Ferris wheel and Colorado's first 4D motion theater, along with a selection of other family-friendly attractions like an Old-West melodrama, a climbing wall, gemstone mining, music and more. The mountaintop Lookout Grille serves up great, good and even better views from the decks.

Get it all for one low price with the Funday Pass. For hours call or go to our website. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is located right off of I-70 in historic Glenwood Springs and adjacent to Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
